A significant climb up to Guaje Ridge Trail from town with plenty of switchbacks.

Taber West

Overview

Description

This trail starts at the parking lot on Arizona St (there are only two parking spaces) then ascends up a short technical climb to Perimeter Trail. From there the trail descends a short way to the canyon bottom and follows the canyon in a gentle climb for about a mile.

From there the trail begins climbing at a serious grade for about 1.5 miles and 1200'. There are multiple switchbacks up this section to the ridgeline, then the trail slacks out a bit before you reach the Guaje Ridge trail. The trail continues past this point down into the bottom of Guaje Canyon, but is not often ridden on this section.
